Would you like to remember a loved one or friend
 or honour them in a special way?

Donating to a non-profit organization can be a wonderful way to commemorate a person's life. Some people prefer to arrange for donations to their favorite charity in lieu of flowers at the funeral or memorial service. Many also like to make a regular practice of giving on an anniversary or birthday, or simply when the person comes to mind. You can remember someone close to you by making a donation, in their honour or memory, to the Leif Erikson Restoration Project.

This is a valuable and positive way to remember a loved one, while helping to provide a safe shelter for the Leif Erikson Viking Ship. In memory donations can be arranged through funeral directors or sent directly to us here at the Leif Erikson Restoration Project using our Donation form.

Simply add the name(s) to be memorialized or honoured on the printout in the space provided.

All donations of any amount are gratefully received and acknowledged. A letter detailing the total amount contributed will be sent after the funeral or memorial service.

The name of your loved one will be listed on this page as a thank you.
